Global Automated Storage and Retrieval System Market – Overview
ASRS (automated storage and retrieval systems) are a key component of many warehouse automation systems that can sort, sequence, buffer, and store a wide variety of commodities in nearly endless locations. The primary components include storage and retrieval machines, rack structures, conveyors, interfaces, and warehouse control systems. ASRS is used in numerous warehouse and distribution center applications, such as finished goods storage, items-to-person picking, order fulfilment, and many more. Apart from that, it aids in the management of all automated equipment functions and the tracking of load movements into and out of the system. The growing demand for storage in manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, and warehouses is a primary driver of the automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) market.
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) Market
COVID 19 had a detrimental impact on automated storage and retrieval system market because of the lockdowns implemented during the second and third quarters of 2020. Consumer behavior is changing as a result of the pandemic, with consumers increasingly preferring internet platforms. E-commerce, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverages have begun to recover from the economic difficulties caused by the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic had a slight impact on the automated storage and retrieval systems industry due to delayed and postponed orders, but it began swiftly rebounding in the fourth quarter of 2020 resulting in spurring demand for ASRS in e-commerce as well as in the automobile industry. Additional reasons driving the ASRS market’s growth include the need for better inventory management, optimal space utilization, and rising labor expenses. Also, the rapid shift towards e-commerce platforms, increased emphasis on automated storage systems, and increased expenditures in automating industrial and material handling activities are projected to generate chances for the ASRS industry to grow in the coming years.
